VIRTUAL EXHIBITS>Meriam Library Virtual Walking Tour
This online version of our walking tour presents a vision of the early, formative years of the twelve northeastern California counties.
The distinctive character of the region and its heritage are represented by a variety of historical images with themes of portraiture, transportation, industry, education, agriculture and the landscape itself and presented in gallery form.
Each gallery displays a thematic collage of historical photographs chosen from the Northeastern California Photograph Collection, which is housed in the Special Collections Department of the Meriam Library.
Over 18,000 images are cataloged by subject and geographic location, for use by researchers. Reproductions are available for a fee and are subject to the policies of the department, donors and U.S. copyright law. Additionally, Special Collections maintains an extensive reference collection for patrons interested in the history of photography and the care and preservation of photographs.
Many of the photographs in the collection have been made available to Chico State by individual donors, museums, historical societies, as well as public and private organizations.
The Meriam Library gratefully acknowledges the organizations and individuals who have contributed to this collection.
